A crisis management unit has been activated by the Greek government to help with the evacuation of foreign tourists due to the ongoing forest fires amid a searing heatwave in Rhodes.

Jet2 cancelled all five flights to the island on Sunday, using the aircraft to fly people home.

At least one Blue Star Ferries ship has been deployed to provide accommodation for displaced holidaymakers.

A spokesperson for the Greek Civil Protection Group said: “Wildfires are burning in Rhodes, while air and ground firefighting force are trying to control them.

“Visitors are being evacuated safely from the affected areas of Rhodes. No injuries reported. They are being redirected to other hotels on the island.

“The evacuation of the hotel units in the affected areas took pace without problems to safe places.

“The authorities are taking measures to ensure accommodation for the evacuees. Also a Blue Star ship is available for hosting visitors.”

The authorities went on to stress that the affected areas represent “less than 10% of the total tourist capacity” on the island in an area south of Lindos between Pekoe and Kiotari on the southeast coast.

The Foreign Office confirmed that the Greek government had established a crisis management unit to respond to the situation in Rhodes with a contact number of +30 210 368 1730. 

British consular assistance is also being provided via +4420 7008 5000.

Updated travel advice from the Foreign, Commonwealth & development Office (FCDO) said: “Extreme temperatures are affecting many areas of Greece and there are a number of active wildfires including in Rhodes. 

“If you are a British national affected by wildfires in Rhodes near Kiotari, Pefkoi, Lindos and the surrounding area, please follow the guidance from the emergency services. Call the Greek emergency services on 112 if you are in immediate danger.

“If you are planning to travel to Rhodes, please check with your travel operator or hotel prior to travel that the area you plan to visit is not impacted by the current wildfires.”

Jet2 holidaymaker Jon Hughes, from County Durham, took to Twitter to film the impact of the wildfires, saying he and his family had to leave a hotel in Lindos and walk four miles in the heat “across dirt tracks in smoke and ash”.

He want on to say: “Army, police and random drivers moved us to a hotel 10km away. Wild still blowing. Getting concerned for the safety of my family.”

A Jet2 spokesperson said on Sunday: “The situation in Rhodes continues to evolve quickly, and our absolute priority is the health, safety and well-being of customers and colleagues in the affected area.

“We can confirm that our in-resort teams are working hard to comply with the guidance of local authorities, and we are continuing to bring more customer helpers and colleagues into the area to provide further assistance.

“We are also flying an additional team of experienced colleagues to Rhodes to provide further support.

“We continue to ask customers in affected areas to follow the advice of both the local authorities, as well as staff in their hotels, who are acting under the advice of the authorities.

“We are contacting all customers in affected areas as quickly as possible by telephone so that we can support them with what they need. We are sending direct communications to affected customers to let them know this, and to remind them of our 24/7 customer helpline number.

“We have cancelled all flights and holidays that are due to depart to Rhodes today (five flights in total). We will be contacting affected customers to update them, and to let them know that they will be provided with a full refund and the opportunity to rebook. We will fly those five aircraft to Rhodes with no customers onboard, so that we can bring customers back to the UK on their scheduled flight.

“We are keeping the situation under constant review, and we will continue to make decisions in the best interests of our customers.”

Tui Group said on Twitter: “If you are on Rhodes in the affected areas, please follow advice from local authorities and our teams on the ground.

“Meanwhile, we are working hard to organise hotel accommodation and shelter in other areas of the island. We provide water and supplies where needed and our teams are present on the ground. Northern touristic areas of Rhodes are unaffected.

“Customers who are about to travel to the affected parts of Rhodes are proactively contacted by Tui and asked to amend their bookings.”

Tokyo Transport Guide

Tokyo has developed a dense network of metro, train and bus lines that serve the Greater Tokyo area. As Tokyo is a very busy city, the public transport is the best way to get around the city. With the multilingual signage and instructions, the public transport is very accessible for tourists.

The rail network dominates the public transport in Greater Tokyo. There are several companies which operate the most extensive rail network in the world. The 13 metro lines cover central Tokyo, especially the area inside the Yamanote circle, around Ginza and east of the loop line. The busiest stations are Shinjuku Station, Ikebukuro Station and Shibuya Station.

JR East is the largest railway company in the world. It provides most of the railway traffic in Tokyo, as well as, to other destinations in Japan. There are several other companies that provide commuter train service to the nearby area. The Shinkansen (Bullet Train) is fast train service that connects the major cities in Japan. The travel time from Osaka/Kyoto to Tokyo is about three hours.

The bus network is not heavily used in the city centre. It's more convenient for places outside the central area. They are not as frequent as the trains, but they are a good alternative if you want to avoid the crowds.

Tokyo Narita International Airport (NRT) is the main one serving Greater Tokyo. It is located on the border between Narita and Shibayama, around 60 km from Tokyo. There are regular train, bus, taxi and private airport transfer services to Tokyo and the surrounding area.

Narita Airport is served by express and commuter trains. Narita Express is connected to Tokyo Station via the Narita and Sobu lines. The suburban JR rapid service train follows the same route to Tokyo Station with several intermediate stops which makes the travel time longer. Keisei provides train services to central Tokyo and the suburbs, as well.

Regular bus services run from Tokyo Narita Airport to the Tokyo City Air Terminal, major hotels and railway stations in the Greater Tokyo Area. Buses are generally slower than trains because of the traffic conditions. An overnight bus service to Kyoto and Osaka is available, as well.

The airport taxi service in Tokyo is fast and reliable. They charge by the meter and additional charges may apply for night rides.

To stay away from the crowds, it's best to book a private Tokyo Narita airport transfer with us. Our premium service includes a door-to-door airport transfer in comfortable and luxury vehicles at fixed cost. The English-speaking driver will meet you at the arrivals gate and take you directly to your hotel, and we hope you enjoy the airport transfer from Tokyo Narita Airport to Tokyo city centre.

Tokyo Haneda Airport (HND) is the second one that serves Greater Tokyo. It is located closer to the city centre, around 14 km. There are regular train and bus lines that run to Tokyo. The latest prices for a private airport taxi from Tokyo Haneda Airport to Tokyo city centre are on the link.
